The Central Coast is arguably the most beautiful and unspoiled area of the California Coastline, and San Luis Obispo is the Heart of the Central Coast. Named “The Happiest City in America” by National Geographic and featured on Oprah’s TV show, SLO-Town, as the locals call it, earns that designation with a vibrant and historic downtown bristling with great restaurants and shops, but devoid of the big chain establishments which so often destroy the character small towns. With over 30,000 students in Cal Poly and Cuesta College, the town maintains an air of youthfulness and innovation.
What Do You Guys Do In San Luis Obispo?
• Walk around the Thursday Night Farmer’s Market
which supports our farm-to-table culinary lifestyle
• Go wine-tasting at over 200 wineries in the area
including Paso Robles now being touted as the next
• Take a kayak out into Morro Bay
• Visit beautiful Avila Beach and soak in mineral hot
• Drive up the Pacific Coast Highway and see Cayucos, a beach town where time has stood still since the 50s, and Cambria, where a forest of old pine trees meets the craggy coastline. Further up the road you’ll find Hearst Castle and a beach filled with giant elephant seals at the start of California’s world famous Big Sur which ends in Carmel and Monterey
• Drive down Highway 101 and visit Pismo Beach, old town Arroyo Grande, or all the way to Santa Barbara
• If you’re fit and love the outdoors, there are endless opportunities for cycling, surfing, golfing, kayaking, and playing in the sand dunes. And hiking is our specialty. From the ancient volcanoes of the Nine Sisters to Montaña de Oro State Park, you will find hikes for all levels of fitness
How’s The Weather?
• So glad you asked. San Luis Obispo enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate all year with an average of 315 days of sunshine and average temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s in the Summer and high 60s in the Winter
About Buchon Cottage
This nearly 100 year old house could not possibly be in a better location. In less than a 5-minute walk you are in the center of downtown with all the restaurants, bars, and cafes you would ever want. Buchon Street is clearly the most attractive neighborhood in town, lined with restored Victorian and Craftsman homes, many with historical designation. You can leave the car at home if you just want to kick back and enjoy the town as the Amtrak station is just a short walk away.
While the exterior retains its vintage look, the interior is currently a blend of traditional and contemporary styles, gradually migrating toward the contemporary. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for gourmet or casual cooking.
The living room features a 50 inch plasma TV and an awesome audio-visual system. The bedroom features a platform California King bed with a Tempur-Pedic mattress and also has a flat screen and DVD player. The sitting room has a workstation and a futon which opens to a queen bed.
I retired 17 years ago and am now a full time world traveler but always return to SLO-Town when I circle around to this part of the globe. This photo, taken in Alberobello, Italy, is me with my 3 loves--my 2 beautiful daughters and my '76 Westfalia Bus.
Roy Bruder purchased this cottage in 2013
I have been coming to SLO for many years and renting small historic homes and always wanted to have my own. After watching the very few old homes that occasionally pop up on the market for years I saw 885 Buchon and knew it was the one. It needed lots of work but I thoroughly enjoyed the remodeling process, with more to come in the near future. The location and proximity to downtown was a major factor for me, as I would much rather walk than drive.
Location is the number one benefit of Buchon Cottage. To be able to stroll a few minutes and be in the center of downtown SLo whether for the Farmers Market or a night out dining is a pleasure.
My wife and I stayed here for our wedding weekend and could not have been more pleased with our decision. You will not be disappointed. Excellent location, great furniture and decor, and an excellent 'SLO' vibe. We will be back!
Buchon Cottage is the ideal place to stay in SLO. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay in this clean, well-appointed rental house. This beautiful 100 year old house is very comfortable and there was nothing lacking that we noticed. Best of all, it is a short walk through a beautiful neighborhood to downtown. We were in town for a wedding and other guests were jealous of our accommodations.
We're in our last day of a week long stay at the Buchon Cottage and i wanted to share our fantastic experience with other travelers.
As owners of our own vacation rental properties, i can tell you execution is perfect here. Well put together property, super clean, excellent quiet location in downtown SLO, all possible amenities included... To give one example: we brought a beach chair (only one would fit in our car) and surprise found two beach chairs in the closet at the cottage!
The owner is easy to deal with, check in and out process simple, coded lock at the cottage, no need to carry keys! - great ease of operation.
We will definitely return!
Our recent stay in this lovely house made our trip to San Luis Obispo even more delightful. The house is charming and warm with all the comforts of home and yet somehow perfectly tidy and like a hotel. Extremely clean but not cold.
There's even a small kitchen garden with fresh vegetables that guests are invited to use. Washer and dryer, entertainment center, beach towels and chairs, ice chest, small cooler and plenty of ice all at your disposal. Highly recommend!
We stayed at Buchon cottage for three days with four adults and a baby and had a wonderful stay - we didn't want to leave! The house had absolutely everything we needed and was even more charming and comfortable than it looked in the pictures. The queen size futon was very comfortable for two adults. It was also wonderful being just a few blocks from town and on such a lovely street. We loved exploring SLO and the surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to return for a longer stay!
We were looking for a few bedrooms close to downtown so we could go walk to the farmers market and night life at downtown SLO. Roy's home was the perfect fit. What a comfortable place to stay and worth the price for sure. I will definitely stay here next time we go to SLO.
